    So, I got a mass email today to all the people using the student host program for their Creighton interviews this week. All I kept thinking as I was reading it was "is anyone going to email me back and ask if I am THE gdbaby of the SDN website? Is anyone going to ask me while we are waiting around for our interviews? Will they think I am as funny in person as I am in this virtual world?" Dear god, who do I think I am? i am off to meet some new people.

    heh heh I love mass emails from dumb admissions offices... I've reverse checked all the email address with google/facebook/etc. ;) scoping out competition I suppose.

    You're going to Nebraska! Also, I hope you're woefully boring among other interviewees. If you can start to talk like William F. Buckley and break out pics of children (preferably someone else's; pictures that come from picture frames when you buy them will do nicely. To add to the effect: fold up the pics) I will send you 10 American Dollars. What can you buy for 10 Dollar? Anything you want.

    What? When? Why?
    It could work, Timbaland is like the only mainstream producer who has indie cred - but it probably won't. I remember reading an interview with kanye. He tried to get her on late registration but she turned him down. The reporter asked him how it made him feel to get shot down. He was quiet for a minute and then said, "I'm Kanye West."
    I hope diplo is still doing her. She is hella cute. And I'm sure you've seen her live - she just looks like a freak.

    and then he said "m.i.a. hates black people."

    she kinda looked like a fish out of water trying to dance on stage. luckily she had scouted out this dance coach that was on stage with her. i felt like i was watching her have a lesson. i got to meet diplo though which was pretty cool. he just walked right up to the bar after their set. most people didn't know it was him, or more importantly that she would be nothing without him.

    On the interview trail, I get asked a lot - "Are you really a potato and if you are, may I eat you?"

    Are you hippy? If not, you have no reason to feel the way you do! You are a super star in front of this virtual community. So the next time someone makes you feel that way you say "I am Kaffy, bitches, remember me?"

    Thank you. I am back now. Just a commoner. Nothing stellar or super about me. The loogie from the homeless guy helped confirm that too.

    I've had a few people figure me out. At Baylor we all introduced ourselves and my introduction was enough for people to realize who I was.

    I think there are levels of stardom on SDN. I mean, there are the SUPERstars, like the Elvis's and Chers (Praetorian, gdbaby, DaMota, Moose) there are the Stars like Tom Selleck, Angela Lansbery, Phil Donahue (shredder, rayhan, turkeyman) who don't quite rise up to superstardom mostly because they only post in one forum. Then there are people who are famous, but not really stars. These are the Zsa Zsa Gabors and Richard Simmons of the world - people know them but don't really know why they are famous, or how the heck they really pay their bills. That would be the Flopotomist. :laugh: :laugh:

    Maybe we should start an analogy thingy~

    Elvis - Moose (he has his own fan club, and is a slightly older applicant)
    Cher - Praetorian (he works in multiple forums and will be around for ever)
    Jerry Lewis - gdbaby (the french love her, she is hilarious, and is the nutty professor)
    Donald Trump - Shredder (too easy)
    Ghandi - rayhan (faces adversity, ends up successful)
    Jackie Chan - Turkeyman

    This is fun! We need more! Maybe I should start a separate thread... hmmm...

    Interestingly, no one has ever figured out who I was at an interview. (Or if they did, they didn't say anything to me. :p )

    I go to a nontraditional commuter school so people aren't around much to notice me. But when I pass by a dark window I notice me. Damn I'm fine.

    roo, I could never find a decent bra that felt right until I went to Victoria's Secret. I threw out all my panties and bras that weren't VS... and I swore I would never ever go back to anything else ever again. Try them... they have lots of different styles and fits. Worth every single penny.

    I am so horrified to have learned that women TRY ON bras before purchasing them.... that just sounds dirty. I mean, I am not putting on underwear after some other guy has been in them!

    Roo, couldn't you return them to any VS store? Most online stores, when they also have walk-in storefronts, let you return to the storefront store. Couldn't hurt to ask. Or ask the store to order them in for you.

    Flop, let's face it, getting something to fit your breasts is a WHOLE lot different than getting something to fit your scrotum. And I don't think a scrotum 'bounces' around quite as much as breasts. It's more like trying men trying on a shirt, really. I mean, lots of men try on shirts next to their bare skin and then put them back on the rack - is trying on a bra any different?

    A few of my classmates said "Ohh you're Medikit!".

    But no one really said much more about it other than that I spend too much time on the internet.

    One of my classmates expected me to be a girl and told me so when she found out I was Medikit. That really weirded me out and I can't say we've ever been able to have a normal conversation since then.

    Underboob isn't exactly equivalent to undercrotch in terms of potential for poor hygiene.

    We might start trying on underwear too if they were to cost more than $30 a pair.

    I used to work at VS and you wouldn't beleive the stuff that goes on there: women peeing in the dressing rooms, TRYING on underwear, coming into the store with wads of sweaty one dollar bills. I need to write a book.

    I was at an interview recently where people were discussing SDN. Most everyone was like "ya, I visit, but I never post", while a couple others admitted to having a few posts under their name. At that time, it just didn't feel appropriate announcing that "ya, I've got at least two thousand posts under my name..."
    Superstar, or dipsh!t? I havn't figured it out yet. :D

    Yes, you would but the men generally don't venture back into VS far enough to get to the dressing rooms.

    My favorite VS moment was when this transvestite came in, started telling me about her breast augmentation surgery and used MY BREASTS to point out where the scar was. When she left I said "What the f--- just happened here?" "Did I just get felt up?"

    Q I was thinking of you as I gave my presentation about allenes and the synthesis of 9,10-pentacosadiene on Moday. I was talking about chirality (researchers were looking for the R config.) and people looked at my puzzled, including my prof. And I said, well really for chirality all you need are orbitals in orthogonal planes and the allene pi systems allows for that. Damn I was good and I thought you would be proud.

    Granted this isn't as exciting as ALL my VS stories, but I wanted to share.

    Good work, gdbaby. :thumbup: I definitely approve. :D They don't generally cover chirality due to lack of rotation in sophomore organic courses, so you're doing some advanced stuff. And no, in case anyone is worried, this won't be on the MCAT. :laugh:
